In order to bring port services closer to its customers and reduce port congestion, KPA has constructed inland container depots at Nairobi, Kisumu and Eldoret. These depots are linked to the Mombasa Port container terminal by a rail-tainer service. Imports are delivered directly from Mombasa to the depots on a Through Bill of Lading, while exports can also be consolidated at the ICDs and railed to the Port for shipping.
The Inland Container Depot Kisumu (ICDK) is located in Kibos in Western Kenya on the shores of Lake Victoria along the Kibos road in Kondele. The facility is linked to the Port of Mombasa by railtainer service.
